Brentford as they closed in on Premier League safety!

Brentford beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge to move in on Premier League safety, with Christian Eriksen scoring his first goal for the club.

Brentford put on a fantastic performance to beat Chelsea for the first time since 1939, coming from behind to stun Thomas Tuchel’s side with three goals in ten minutes in the second half before adding a fourth late on to humiliate the Champions League holders.


The Bees had the best of the first half, but Antonio Rudiger punished them for not taking chances three minutes after the restart with a superb 30-yard finish past David Raya.

Brentford’s reaction was immediate and dramatic, with Vitaly Janelt equalising two minutes later, before the golden moment in the 54th minute, when Bryan Mbeumo squared a pass for Eriksen to score in front of the ecstatic home crowd.

Watch the goals of defeat to Chelsea!

Brentford didn’t stop there, with Janelt breaking clear on the hour to beat Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy,

before replacement Yoane Wissa rounded off the scoring in the closing minutes.

Brentford currently have 33 points,

11 more than Watford, who are in third place, and can almost certainly expect to play in the Premier League next season.

With that first goal for the Bees since his comeback from a cardiac episode while playing for Denmark against Finland at Euro 2020 in June, Eriksen gave the story of this absolutely incredible Brentford victory.

Eriksen shines in a convincing victory.

It was a magical moment, but it was just the cherry on top of a truly outstanding team performance by Brentford,

who deservedly earned one of the finest victories in the club’s history. The margin of victory was not in their favour.

From the opening whistle, Thomas Frank’s side went all out to beat Chelsea,

with striker Ivan Toney having three good chances as they went all out.

Chelsea will receive their just desserts.

Chelsea can make no excuses for their loss or the humiliating scoreline,

as they were dreadful in a performance that was utterly out of character for their recent efforts.

Tuchel’s team won all six of their games in March, but they were never totally switched on from start to finish, and they paid the price.
